[quote=“littleiron”]I don’t want this thread to become a rant on the racism of Taiwanese (not that I’m in charge or anything). I guess I just wish more Taiwanese were AWARE there is such a high level of discrimination and racism; when talking with friends, I try to show them the extent of the problem, but am very careful about saying sweeping generalizations or sound like I’m downgrading their culture.
Again, I hope more and more of my Taiwanese friends can be like the original poster, realize there’s a problem, and feel like doing something about it, even if its just discussing it.[/quote]
My sentiments exactly. For me it is not so much about how I am treated, which is pretty damn good as a white male, but how other races and genders in Taiwan are treated. When broaching this subject with my Taiwanese friends and co-workers, I try not to preach, but I refuse to avoid discussing Taiwanese racism simply because it makes them uncomfortable or lose face.
